Link Round-Up: December 13, 2012
25 Amazing Gingerbread Houses. They're all technically houses, but that's all they have in common.
After many years of installing a cut Christmas tree in the main public square of Brussels, Belgium, the tree this year is artificial, abstract, and electronic. Not all of the locals are pleased.
Beautiful Buildings Made from Ice and Snow. They don't last long, but for a short time they are pure magic.
The creator of the webcomic xkcd, Randall Munroe, is one of the internet's favorite people. The "webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language" delivered plenty of each. Then it veered into medical science. Munroe explained that everything changed when his fiancé (now wife) was diagnosed with cancer. Along the way, the webcomic pointed out some powerful observations in dealing with the disease. This one in particular made it clear that the only indication of beating cancer is time. Today's comic announces that it has been two years since the diagnosis. Congratulations to the Munroes on this important milestone. Happy Biopsy-versary!
